There's been an outdated distaste for repeating clothes in the world of fashion, especially for relevant public figures—which, in today's world meant fashion influencers or celebrities—who are often hailed as outfit pegs and style inspos. But regular people like us do it all the time and it's not a fair and accurate indication of how style-savvy (or not) a person is. It all lies in how we style these clothing items and how satisfied we are with the resulting 'fit.
Fashion and lifestyle YouTuber Ashley Garcia is one online personality who seems to have aced repeating clothes like a pro. With a following of 250,000 and counting on Instagram and over 400,000 on YouTube, Ashley isn't shy about her penchant for thrifting and upcycling clothes—in fact, that's what her legion of subscribers have come to know and love her for. So it's no surprise that she's also mastered the art of repeating outfits, proving that you can repeat and recycle pieces in your wardrobe as many times as you can and still look cool.

Cute ways to repeat your clothes, as seen on Ashley Garcia:
If you love neutrals, a brown jacket is an easy and versatile piece to wear. Here, Ashley wore a funky OOTD by pairing it with an animal-printed flare pants and black accents.
She also wore the cozy brown cover-up in a more feminine fit composed of a corset top and a mini skirt.
This Argyle-patterned mini skirt is originally part of a cute set of co-ords.
Ashley wore the skirt with a cozy character sweater on top of a collared shirt for a preppy look.
She also wore it with a chocolate brown bell-sleeved top and a white headband for a more girly vibe.
Ashley is making a case for bell bottoms in 2021 by partnering it with a crisp cropped cardigan top.
She also wore flares with an oversized shirt to make the throwback piece fit for a street-style OOTD.
Cardigans worn as tops instead of a supplementary piece for cold days is a huge trend nowadays. Here, Ashley wore her mint green cardigan with a cow-print mini skirt.
